Generally Good, Except For The Decor

Piccolo's describes itself as fine Italian dining. We would agree with that description except for the decor. The food and service were very good, but the atmosphere was out of date and semi depressing. I'm giving it 4 stars because the service was warm, efficient and properly paced. However, at... read more

Platepeddler Dis-Approved This restaurant is in the heart of the Italian section on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester. Has a nice Decor in side with traditional italian music playing. Place has a strong aroma of gade cheese. Service was very good, rest is downhill... Two of us , ordered Salad, beverage, and entree. Entrees were the suggestion of waitress, not good!... More

We got into Worcester as evening was coming and had no idea where anything was. We happened upon this place, wanting a good sized pasta meal as we were going to run in the Boston Marathon two days later. We felt SO lucky to be here!!! The food was absolutely delicious - I would say the best marinara sauce I... More

Awesome meal last night! Vitello scallopino was absolutely delicious. My GF said the ravioli was the best one she ever had in her life (it was the appetizer one and it was as big as the dinner plate)! Atmosphere was old school - nothing special - table of about 12 men enjoying there night out, another families enjoying their dinner.... More

If you are looking for GREAT food this is the place to go. The portions are good sized and their salads are great. The Insalata Bel Mondo and Insalata Fatima are the best. Three of us had, one of the specials for the day, Steak tips with gemelli pasta and spicy red sauce. Cooked perfect. Another had Gamberi Julianna, (sautéed... More

My friend Derby calls Piccolo's "the best Italian food in Worcester County". If my dinner there is any indication, he's right on the mark. Very attentive service. The veal parmesan and the pasta sauce were the best I've had in memory. I had the least expensive Chianti on the menu, and it was very enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Went for our wedding anniversary. It wasn't too crowded, but my husband and I could barely carry on a conversation because of the noise. Our waitress was less than helpful and difficult to track down. When served our requested bottle of wine, our waitress just poured a bit to taste and then filled my glass and nearly slammed the bottle... More

This was my third or fourth visit and the last time was two or three years back. The atmosphere is great. The server was a pain and we felt rushed even though it was early and not busy. The bread was stale. We ordered an appetizer special of fried oysters which was the best thing I tasted. My husband had... More
